I have the same NUC running Windows 10.
I'm getting the same error in the device manager as you. I'm guessing a new driver is required?
I do not believe it is a driver problem. The BIOS flash program, which runs outside Windows,
can't establish contact with the Intel TXE, hence the problem is on a lower level.
I updated the BIOS on my NUC before I had installed the OS (Windows 10). I'm running BIOS v50.
I only noticed the error in device manager after updating to the new Windows 10 build 10074.
Are you really really sure that the problem was not visible after the BIOS update, but before you installed W10?
Anyway - to diagnose further - please try to re-apply the BIOS v50 update to see if it succeeds.
No, not sure sorry. And, you're right, I can't flash BIOS v50 any more. I get the same error as you.
The Intel TXE driver says it updates the firmware too : Intel® Download Center
Seems like there is some sort of conflict between that firmware and the driver then? I suppose we will have to wait until Intel fixes it.
Right, now we have 3 certain instances of this error. It seems to be more related to the firmware than the OS.
I suspect that one of the later BIOS updates incorporates a corrupted TXE firmware.
Intel - please respond!!
I would just like to confirm another user experiencing the same problem. Make that 4 certain instances.
Restoring the default BIOS settings rendered nothing (I had only adjusted the default fan speed).
BIOS recovery via F7, or by removing the jumper, to earlier BIOS versions (I tried v41 and v45)
failed with the same symptoms as described above!
Same here Lasse. I tried earlier BIOS versions with no luck.
I fixed it!
Unfortunately I don't know exactly what I did.
I was messing with "Secure Boot" and "UEFI Boot" in BIOS. Then I thought I would try the BIOS recovery method, but I could only flash to v50, as none of the other BIOS (v47 and v48) were recognised on the USB stick. v50 worked though, and it did the full BIOS recovery.
Next time I loaded Windows, the TXE was fine. No problems in device manager at all.
I've tried everything to replicate the problem but it won't come back. All I can think is that the BIOS recovery fixed it.
That's great news!
The "BIOS recovery method" you are referring to - pls describe it.
I used the instructions there.
Download BIOS file FY0050.BIO and put it on a USB stick.
Turn off the NUC, unplug it, open it up, and remove the BIOS recovery jumper.
With the USB stick plugged in, plug the NUC back in and turn it on.
It should start the recovery automatically and flash the BIOS with the one on the USB stick.
The only BIOS that worked for me was the v50 one. I tried v47 and v48 but the screen just stayed black and nothing happened.
There is a chance that it was me changing BIOS settings that fixed it and not the recovery. I'm just not sure. I can't replicate the problem either.
